This composition by Guru Arjan Sahib is in Rag Majh. This rag (musical mode) evolved from the folk music of the Majha area of the Panjab. There is no reference to this rag in Indian music. It is only sung in Panjab and is in the Guru Granth Sahib. It is sung to describe a beloved's tears in their lover's memory. The reflection: The separation is over; what once was dry becomes green. Bliss is experienced. The veil is lifted, and realization dawns one is part of the 1 Light.
